DJDS - "I Don't Love You" (Singles Going Steady)

DJDS' "I Don't Love You" is quite reminiscent of the sound that made Moby famous.

John Bergstrom: From their upcoming sophomore album. With the earnest, repeated sample, the simple arrangements and the emo chords, it is quite reminiscent of the sound that made Moby famous. So it's come back around, then. Not a bad thing. [7/10]

Dustin Ragucos: As an interlude piece to a record, DJDS' "I Don't Love You" might manage well with its motivation. As a standalone piece, the song escalates to bare minimums, taking little in the way of risks and leaving those wanting for something akin to the Avalanches' "Since I Left You" disappointed. [5/10]

Jedd Beaudoin: What’s the point? You can just repeat patterns over and over and over and over and over and over. Me too. And I don’t love you either. [1/10]

SCORE: 4.33
